QD Class – Display Cases with Door Opening – System Q Museum Installations - Goppion

Display cases with door opening
QD Class

The QD class represents the latest technological evolution of display cases as “glass cabinets,” or in other words, cases that have one or more doors.

They can be stand-alone island (QD-I) models, placed against a wall (QD-W) or hanging (QD-H). Bases can be either square or rectangular and the sides can be entirely in glass, in glass and metal or entirely in metal. The ceiling can be in glass, glass with a metal frame or in metal.

The doors open either by rotation on the vertical axis or by pull & slide on the horizontal axis.

All of these variants are designed to fit into any architectural space and exhibition layout.

The evolution

The archetype of this series is the model built in 1988 for the Civiche Raccolte d’Arte Applicata dei Civici Musei del Castello Sforzesco in Milan. The display cases realized for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2009 are highly advanced examples.
